Nonlinear capacitors are defined by the functions [Q.
Each cell consists of a linear inductive element of inductance l and a linear resistor with resistance r1 in the series branch, which constitute the linear dispersive element, and a nonlinear capacitor of capacitance c and a linear resistor with resistance r2 in the shunt branch.
One of the key points in evaluating the nonlinearities in the modelling of power MOSFETs is to understand that the model is merely an equivalent circuit, and nonlinear capacitors in the model are not physical capacitances [8], [9], although the model may resemble the physical structures.
In the proposition below, the result presented above is extended in the sense that the asymptotic stability properties are still guaranteed considering nonlinear capacitors and inductors.
The first case study considers a network operating under constant voltage sources, with possibly nonlinear capacitors and inductors, with linear cotree resistances and assuming that the tree resistances are equal to zero; that is, [R.
